University of Michigan Football All-American
Entering Michigan as an 18-year old freshman in 1944, Dick caught two touchdown passes to beat the Iowa Seahawks in his first college game that fall. He saw Navy service in 1946, but returned in 1947 to star on the Rose Bowl winner, and reached the heights in 1948 as he became the second highest scoring end in the nation. His marvelous hands and speed and deadly tackling easily earned him All-American honors. He became a top TV announcer in Buffalo, N.Y.
